It's called OOP for a reason. Please, the constructor never executes code. Define some methods for that.
You are adding the JLabel to the ContentPane - which you first set with a JLabel. Adding a JLabel to a JLabel does not work.
Also please just refer to the JFrame by adding to "this".
 
Suggestion:
 
1. OOP that.
2. Set up a JPanel, that forms the playground for the rat.
You probably want a second Panel for the Game controls - which are now to be entered in the console before.
3. Use a null-Layout for the game-Panel. You want to move the rat by pixel / absolute position, not by relative position to some other control.
FlowLayout is also default, does not need to be initalized.
 
import javax.swing.*;
class CatchTheRat extends JFrame {
	// The Rat
	JLabel lb;
 
	// Move it randomly!
	Random r;
 
	public CatchTheRat(int k) {
		createGUI(k);
	}
 
	private void createGUI(int k) {
 
		// Set frame properties
		setTitle("Catch The Rat");
		setLayout(new FlowLayout());
		setDefaultCloseOperation(EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
		
//		setExtendedState(MAXIMIZED_BOTH);
		setSize(new Dimension(800,600));
		this.add(createContent(k));
		
		// Maximize the frame
		setVisible(true);
	}
 
	private JPanel createContent(int k) {
		JPanel oPanel = new JPanel();
		// Set the background (just for a good look)
//		setContentPane(new JLabel(new ImageIcon("background.jpg")));

		// Set layout to the content pane
//		oPanel.setLayout(new FlowLayout());

		// Create the rat
		lb = new JLabel(new ImageIcon("rat.jpg"));
 
		// Add the rat
		oPanel.add(lb);
 
		// Create Random object
		r = new Random();
 
// The random positions do not work, will "hide" the icon therefor

//		// Create a timer and call it for every k seconds
//		new Timer(k, new ActionListener() {
//
//			public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent ae) {
//
//				// Move the rat randomly, subtract 75, so that the rat should
//				// not meet the edges
//				lb.setLocation(r.nextInt(getWidth()), r.nextInt(getHeight()));
//
//			}
//
//		}).start();

		// Add mouselistener, notify when user clicks it!
		lb.addMouseListener(new MouseAdapter() {
 
			public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent me) {
				// Create a beep sound when clicked to notify
				Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().beep();
 
				// Also print it!
				System.out.println("Caught!");
			}
 
		});
		
		return oPanel;
 
	}
 
	public static void main(String args[]) {
 
		// Create Scanner object
//		Scanner s = new Scanner(System.in);
//
//		// Let the user enter his capability of catching the rat!
//		System.out.println("Enter the speed");
//
//		// Read the input
//		int k = s.nextInt();

		// Create the frame and send the value of k
		new CatchTheRat(5);
 
	}
}
